Culver preferred over Nussle in poll

The Research Iowa Poll conducted May 20th through 22nd shows Democrat Chet Culver as the only Dem polling ahead of Republican Jim Nussle, 49% to Nussle's 41% (margin of error +/- 4%)

Culver was also had the highest favorability among Dems and essentially tied Nussle in that department.

Among likely Democratic voter's choice if the primary were held today, Culver also came out on top with 38%

Among all Iowa voters, Bush's performance approval numbers showed 69% rating it "Fair" or "Poor", and only 29% "Good" or "Excellent" (3%)

Asked whether they'd like to see more Democrats or Republicans elected to congress, Iowans prefered Dems over Republicans 48% to 36%, reflecting national polls asking the same question.

With Iowijans, you have to be real careful interpreting that polling data. If the GOP prez would not get their vote, should he have been on the ballot, they will excercise their contarian nature and make sure they don't overload with Dems. The opposite occured when Harkin got in and the same thing in the adventures of the beautiful and talented Ed Mezvinsky. (I must say, however, that Mezvinsky had the best looking female volunteer force im the history of local politics. We ref'd to Mez. HQ as the "Dog Free Zone."

But I digress.

Good night!

Nussle needs to put a bag over his head again and leave town.
